Mikel Obi Hit With Injury Fear At Chinese Club

Complete Sports Nigeria reports that Tianjin Teda midfielder, China, John Mikel Obi, is once again worried about the injury, following his absence from the Chinese Super League club last weekend.

In the midst of memories of an injury that led him to hospital last season and a wrist fracture that forced him to wear a bandage in training, Mikel had missed a three-game defeat against Teda . series with a 3-2 win over Dalian Yifang.

Despite his first appearance at the club last weekend, following a ban on match due to accumulated cards, the club's followers indicate that Mikel was able to have a relapse of the wrist.

Concerns over another possible injury to the former Chelsea star have been heightened by media reports that he missed the CSL game for precautionary reasons.

Mikel ended up missing the excitement of his club's biggest win of late. The result places Tianjin in ninth place on the table, with 18 points, after 14 rounds of matches.

The goals of Yanyi Li (61), Jiakang Hui (65) and Frank Acheampong (70) helped Teda win, despite successes of Nyasha Mushekwi (80) and Ming'an Cui (88).

Another report said Mikel was not in Teda's roving squad for the Chinese Super League clash against Dalian Yifang this weekend due to injury.

He suffered the injury in his first match after the World Cup break against Chongqing Dang on July 21, where he was in action for 90 minutes and played on the right side of a three-man midfielder.

Subsequently, Mikel did not train with his Tianjin Teda teammates last week because his knees were swollen.
